Overview

Now in paperback—a celebration of fifty years of no-holds-barred sports entertainment!

Suddenly it’s over, and in the center of the ring, one man is victorious. The referee raises his hand, and from somewhere (you’re not quite sure where because you’re still cheering), the shining symbol of this momentous win appears. With the crowd still roaring, the winner stands alone in the ring and raises the championship belt high over his head. The lights shine off the WWE Championship title belt, and in that instant, the winner’s life will be changed forever.

For over half a century, Superstars have battled to win the WWE Championship. While the name may have changed, the prestige attached to the champion­ship has exploded. That is due in no small part to the immortals of wrestling who have held this coveted title—Bruno Sammartino taking the title from the first holder, Buddy Rogers...the totally unexpected win of “Superstar” Billy Graham...Hulk Hogan’s win over the Iron Sheik, who had refused a payoff to injure Hogan...Andre the Giant’s surrender of the title to Ted DiBiase...the newcomer win of the Undertaker...the commanding wrestling abilities of Bret Hart...Shawn Michaels’s win in Montreal...the stunning victories of Stone Cold Steve Austin...the triumph of the People’s Champion, The Rock...Triple H playing the game...the never-surrender attitude of John Cena.

This is the chronicle of how the title that is now known as the WWE Championship became sports-entertainment’s most coveted prize.

The WWE Championship By Kevin Sullivan The WWE Championship book is about a 300 page book, detailing the history and some of the greatest wrestling matches ever in WWE. This book takes you back to the 1950s and takes you all the way through the early 2000s. Some of the greatest wrestlers ever, like Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage are covered in the book, with detailed play by plays of some of their greatest matches. I personally enjoyed the book a lot. I started reading this with little to no WWE knowledge, and honestly I had always thought WWE was a joke. But after reading through this book, I have more respect for WWE, and almost like it. It was really neat reading about how the sport changed throughout history, where it started off like more traditional wrestling, but has progressed to be more and more entertainment and more violent. One major theme in the book was underdog stories. Either a story was told about the inspirational story of how an average Joe became an international wrestling superstar, or somebody who was not expected to win did win, and became a champion. The book is inspiring in that sense, that anybody can do it if they have the heart and dedication, like a lot of these wrestlers had. I think that for anybody that has ever taken interest in WWE should pick up this book for sure. If you are not a WWE fan, I still recommend the book. There are a lot of good stories and some of the play by plays are fun to read. Overall I give the book 5 stars.
